It does seem rather absurd that all the wonders of modern medicine are being used to keep the boy bomber in Boston alive so there can be a trail after which they kill him.

The acts of violence and the murders he committed are unforgivable and he has to be punished, but killing him as well will serve no purpose whatsoever. Once the state itself lowers itself to the level of the terrorist than all reason is lost. When I think of this bombing all I think of is that wonderful 8 year old boy holding the peace sign, I doubt very much he would want another child killed, I know he is the perpetrator but he is only 19 and was being led by his bother. Not that there should be any reason to be against capital punishment. I believe that Massachusetts doesn’t have the death penalty but by making it a federal crime the death penalty can be sort.
